Garko, Guitierrez great in win

It was a rather unconventional walk-off win, but the Indians will take it. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th, Ryan Garko grounded into a fielder’s choice which scored the winning run in the Tribe’s 5-4 win over the Twins Friday night. Not only did Garko have the game-winning RBI, he helped the Indians get off to a quick lead thanks to his two-run blast off one of the American League’s best in Johan Santana. Franklin Guitierrez also had a solid night with three hits and two doubles, one of which started the 10th inning rally.

Fausto Carmona took the hill once again and for once, the game didn’t completely blow up in his face. Despite five walks, Carmona gave up only two runs in five innings and left with the lead. The Twins were able to get to Tom Mastny in the ninth to tie it but the Indians were able to deliver some extra-inning magic.
